Failedgunner,

If I understand correctly are you a US JD? From what I've read LLMs for US JDs are generally considered to be quite exceptional, other than for tax (and sometimes IP). I understand that for US JDs LLMs are not really considered for hiring decisions; JD results being given the most weight.

I think the most important consideration is what you want to do with the LLM, and in what location. The application process is all about making a convincing case. If you can do this, plus get some more work experience in your field and additional publications, maybe you'll stand a chance at the schools you mentioned. Just remember with subpar marks, you'll be fighting an uphill battle and will have to work hard to stand out.

Best of luck!

Thanks for the response. I would like to go into academia, because I really enjoy scholarly writing and would like to have the opportunity to continue. That's what my interest in an LL.M. stems from.
